Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

A random thought... How efficient is a full head of hair as a receptor for virus particles? Does this indicate the benefits of wearing a hat or shaving the head?
This hypothesis falls down immediately, Cummings is bald as a coot.... Back to the drawing board?

Re: POLITICS CORNER

Speaking of putting two fingers up.... The Cummings affair whilst not a deal-breaker in itself is a good example of bad leadership and thus reflects on Johnson. Classic example of do as I say not as I do and in effect showing contempt for the proles locked in their urban high rise flats. It's a ques...

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

Another blustery day and some quite large branches pulled of of the trees. I decided it was best not to walk through Valley Gardens under the trees, quite a few dead ones overhanging the path. At 20:00 we had a wind, dry with broken cloud and clear patches. Still a breeze first thing this morning, c...

He was still fast Ian and the best! I noted yesterday that bowlers in cricket matches are to be prohibited from spitting on the ball as an aid to polishing one side of it but sweat will be allowed. That reminded me of a small forgotten corner that was quite a controversy at the time but is now a for...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

I like Ian's suggestion. When the Clean Air acts were brought in and coal smoke was sharply reduced one unintended consequence was the flare up of mildew and rust attacks on plants, particularly roses. Similar effect with pollen and hay-fever?

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Tiz, quite right, it was David wot done it. (dissembling) Susan and I decided that on a balance of probabilities, the advantages of being closer than 2 metres to allow a pedicure were worth the risk so we managed it. She aND DAUGHTER jESS HAVE MADE THE SAME DECISION SO SHE CAN HOLD kAHARA AND NOT DE...

I'm listening to Kirstie Alsop (the house finding programme lady) on R4 talking about the benefits of doing things with your hands. She compares it with meditation in that you get so absorbed in what you are doing that you forget all your cares and hang ups and work almost on a spiritual plane. Coul...

Not TV, Radio 4. Listen to the 15 minute programme aired at 05:45 this morning. I think it was called Legacy of War. A tear jerker but well worth listening to.
